Hunger games... Just like with Harry Potter.. If you havent read the book and Just watched the movie you are missing out on so much. The book is: 1) Significantly better and 2) You don't have to wait for the next movie to knows what happens next!
Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa.

This is by far the best book in the Hunger Games trilogy. I wasn't a fan of the Hunger Games because of the selfishness I felt encapsulated Katniss's survival.
